Add or delete letters as needed to complete each question. An outline does not always use complete sentences and does not need to be detailed. I. State your intentions for managing and balancing the scope-time-cost triangle. A. Starbucks needs to narrow the scope of the project. For example, Starbucks can delete the process of packaging design and the packages’ production line. It is a good idea that Starbucks can hire a professional design company for packaging design. B. Starbucks needs to pay more attention on the time. If Starbucks spent too much time on the initiating and planning phase, Starbucks would get profits too late. Therefore, Starbucks should try to save time in initiating and planning phase. C. Although Starbucks needs to save the cost for material purchasing, Starbucks should spend more money on the publicity. This is the new product for Chinese consumers. II. Highlight the key risks and obstacles that management will have to mitigate for the plan. A. The first obstacle is the lack of time. Specifically, Starbucks cannot achieve the balance of payment in a short time. Starbucks needs to build a new supply chain for its new business idea. This process will take lots of time. B. The second obstacle is that Starbucks does not have enough employees. In fact, the scope of the project is so wide that Starbucks cannot have enough employees. First, Starbucks needs lots of professional talents for the design team, the publicity team, etc. Then, Starbucks needs lots of experienced workers for ground coffee bean and packages’ production line. C. The last risk is that the Chinese consumers cannot accept the Starbucks’s new products because Chinese consumers prefer to drink the tea which is the substitutable product for coffee. If so, Starbucks’s business ideal will be failed totally. III. Identify the triggers or signals that management will use to monitor if these risks are occurring or not. A. That Starbucks cannot achieve the balance of payment in the monitoring and controlling phase is the signal that Chinese consumers may not accept the new products. B. Starbucks cannot complete the order in time is the signal that Starbucks does not have enough workers C. Starbucks costs too much money in the initiating and planning phases is the signal that Starbucks needs to save the time. IV. Summarize the cost schedule by providing cost categories for the project—rough order of magnitude (ROM) (very high level) dollar estimates are adequate for this. Note: You may insert a tabular format here for clarity.
